Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
I do not describe myself as a CBT therapist but I am able to use CBT skills and theory within my counselling work as I have also trained in this approach.
The aim of CBT to work in a collaborative relationship with you to explore how the way you think and the underlying beliefs to these thoughts affect the way you feel and act. It is a more structured approach and can involve completing work between sessions.
In the first sessions we work together to assess the problems that you want to deal with and together develop some goals which you would like to achieve by developing a treatment plan. I can help you learn new skills and coping strategies that you can ustilise not only in the current situation but that you can adapt to oither situations and probleme areas in your life.
